Rollei 35 Classic!

Hey guys!

I'm new to the forum. I've been shooting with a Rollei 35 Classic for about 5 months now, and I'd like to share some of my favorite images taken with this incredible camera. Along with my Nikon SP 2005, it is one of my favorite things on the planet.

Black and white shots were taken with Tri-X and a yellow filter. The color shot is using Fuji C100, which is my favorite color film.

Happy shooting!

Wonderful camera! And wonderful you sharing your inspiration here Rob! If I may, your images deserve more space between them when you post.


P.S. I like all three

Be careful, a Rollei 35 is addictive;-)
These are fine photos!
I especially like the surreal and a little post-apocalyptic look of the second one. The word PARK in the background looks like an ironic comment to the scenery!
